JOB-05 l’Afrique Wallpaper is a part of Archives collection by Studio Job for NLXL. The Collection reflects a retrospect of the history of Studio Job. They used archetypical drawings and these universal symbols are combined as iconographic elements for patterns, compositions and embossing, ultimately creating 6 designs: Industry, Labyrinth, Perished, Alt Deutsch, l'Afrique and Withered Flowers (Black and Color).
L'Afrique emerged from the collaboration with Land Rover (2012 - 2013). Studio Job were asked to design and produce a unique, sculptural Land Rover Defender on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the iconic vehicle. The Defender is strongly rooted in Africa. They therefore asked manufacturer Vlisco - a specialist.
This collection of Studio Job won the Editor’s award at ICFF New York in 2014.
